Chamomile Tea Latte

I've been drinking this Chamomile Tea Latte every time I want a non-caffeinated drink. The cloves and vanilla extract add a nice depth of flavor and the froth created from the French press creates the perfect texture. I used vanilla soy milk, which is sweet on its own, but feel free to add some honey if you want to sweeten up your tea latte.

Makes 2 servings 

2 cups milk
2 tablespoons chamomile tea (I used Gentle Blossom from Tealia.
5 cloves, crushed
1 cinnamon stick + ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1. Heat milk with chamomile, cinnamon stick, & cloves in a saucepan. Steep for 5 minutes.
2. Filter the milk into a French press. Add vanilla extract. Move the French press plunger to froth the milk.
3. Pour the tea into 2 cups & sprinkle on ground cinnamon. Enjoy!

Brilliant, Jee. I think I will try this with rooibos.

Thanks, Georgia! Rooibos sounds excellent.

I'd like to try the Chamomile tea.
